Our free Thermal Analysis app offers students a fun and engaging way to study thermal energy. Using Thermal Analysis, students can observe temperature changes on the skin, illustrate convection, track heating due to friction, compare heat conduction in different materials, analyze the transparency of materials in infrared vs. visible light and so much more. What will you explore?
Follow along as our Director of Physics, Fran Poodry, walks through the functions of our free Thermal Analysis app. You’ll learn how to analyze the absorption of radiant energy, evaluate the transmission and reflection of infrared light, and determine respiration rate.
Since 2010, Dr. Charles Xie of Concord Consortium has been pioneering the applications of IR imaging in chemistry and biology. Read his independent research articles on advanced IR thermography as an important method of chemical imaging:
Mark up to four locations or regions on the image to determine the minimum, maximum, or average temperature.
Graph live temperature data during an experiment.
Capture temperature data for everything within a video frame allowing you to analyze any object at any time.
Export thermal image videos to the Photos app or to our Graphical Analysis app for further analysis.
“The Thermal camera, in conjunction with the Thermal Analysis app, can do much more than simply detect heat. Students will also be able to record and graph live temperature data from up to four locations on an image. This will allow them to compare the temperature data between different locations during an experiment. Furthermore, each picture taken with this device will also simultaneously take a standard picture, providing greater detail of the image.”
